Task 5.3.3: Co-ordination of standardisation efforts


This task is led by the NextGRID project supported by the AKOGRIMO project.

Thilo Kielmann (VUA) is the XtreemOS representative for this collaboration task.



Objectives and activities:

- In addition to individual project activities on standardisation, a joint strategy and joint activities will enable increased impact for European projects. Therefore a FP6 Grid Standards Coordination Group (GSCG) has been established that produces a regularly updated standards report and helps to coordinate the activities of the various projects in the standard context.

- The strategy group builds on persons/organisations which are already involved and influential in the different standardisation bodies.

- Collaboration as appropriate with project IST FP6 COPRAS - Co-operation Platform for Research and Standards.

- The GSCG provides answers to:

  • which standardisation bodies/other fora to contribute to
  • how to most efficiently contribute
  • quasi standardisation through collaboration with industry
  • strategy for getting weight in standardisation process  


XtreemOS specific commitment to this task:

Several XtreemOS partners are involved in standardization activities in GGF (CNR,ZIB,VUA, …).
